Amplify Health, a Singapore-based health solutions provider, has on Tuesday announced the acquisition of AiDA Technologies (AiDA), a provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to companies in Asia Pacific.

Through the acquisition of AiDA, Amplify Health bolsters its regional team of highly skilled data scientists, Amplify Health said in a statement.

“Driven by our purpose to make the people of Asia Pacific healthier, we are building an integrated health technology solutions business that transforms health and wellness for patients and communities across Asia Pacific,” said Dr Axel Baur, Deputy Chief Executive of Amplify Health.

“The acquisition of AiDA Technologies adds further AI and machine learning capability to our existing IP and integrated health technology solutions stack that we are deploying throughout the region,

“Through this acquisition, we are accelerating our plans to enable payors, corporates, medical providers, and public health systems to improve health outcomes for patients and the sustainability of healthcare systems in Asia Pacific,” he added.

AiDA was founded in 2016 in Singapore by Dr Tan Geok Leng, Dr Shonali Krishnaswamy, and a team of accomplished data scientists from the InfoComm Research Institute (I2R), A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research).

The firm has developed a suite of commercially proven and multi award-winning proprietary machine learning technologies, used to automate underwriting, claims processing, and detect fraud, waste and abuse, which enable companies to use data better to accelerate processes, increase revenue, drive cost reductions and anticipate evolving risk.

These capabilities complement and build on the existing Amplify Health integrated health technology solutions stack and associated IP comprising production-tested claims processing and administration systems, integrated digital health programmes to manage chronic disease and private medical insurance (PMI) product development capabilities, all underpinned by market-leading proprietary health intelligence platforms.

AiDA has established a solid client base across South-East Asia and a deep network of relationships in government, academia, research and other third-party institutions.

“As we sought to unlock the future potential of AiDA Technologies, we looked for a partner who could provide greater domain expertise, financial resources and access to new distribution networks to enable us to scale for even greater impact,” said Dr Tan Geok Leng, Chief Executive Officer of AIDA Technologies.

“We are confident that we have found that partner in Amplify Health and its impressive team. We are incredibly excited to join forces with Amplify Health on its mission of making the people of Asia Pacific healthier and putting our best-in-class technology to use across the region,” he added.

Amplify Health is a pan-Asian integrated health technology solutions business creating value for all stakeholders in healthcare systems.

Its integrated health technology solutions empower its clients to improve healthcare funding, access and delivery at every point in the value chain to improve the health and wellbeing of people and communities across Asia.
